Eat, Drink & Be Generous
Rebuilding community through good food and generosity.
Working together to rebuild community through good food and generosity.
A series of virtual events, Eat, Drink & Be Generous is centered around good food and raising money to support the community.
We’ll be back with more events in the fall.
These events will bring guests together over Zoom for an evening of robust discussion around issues impacting people in the community, a special cooking or bartending demo from a featured chef or bartender plus fundraising to help those in need. Food and/or cocktail kits will be supplied by some of Seattle’s best local restaurants and available for guests to pick up the night of the event.
Check back here often—more events are coming and will be added soon.

Sponsor This Event
Together with our donors and partners, we’re working every day to rebuild our community in Seattle and King County in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis. This is a great opportunity to help our most vulnerable neighbors get back on their feet while also lifting up our local restaurants.
Thanks to these Generous Event Sponsors
Because of the generosity of event sponsors, all proceeds from ticket sales and donations made at events will go to supporting the community. Restaurant costs are covered by sponsorships.
How will the virtual events work?
After registering, we’ll reach out to you with details about the menu, where and when to pick up your meal kit if applicable. Close to the event, we’ll send you the secure Zoom link.
What’s in a meal kit?
Meal kits are put together to serve two adults. We’re doing our best to accommodate some dietary needs (e.g. vegetarian), though this may vary by event/establishment. Every meal and/or cocktail kit will be different depending on the featured chef and restaurant. Most will involve at least some level of preparation necessary, such as grilling a steak or dressing a salad.
If I’m unable to pick up my meal kit, can I get a refund?
Registrations aren’t refundable but are definitely transferable! If something comes up, we encourage you to share your ticket(s) with someone who you really like. It’s going to be a fun event—and is a great opportunity to get to know more about United Way and support local restaurants.
Are you planning any in-person events?
For now, we’re going fully virtual through fall and winter. We’ll reevaluate as things improve with both the weather and COVID-19.
